Causes of impotence

Introduction to impotence

When a man is impotent, it means that he is not able to maintain or even obtain an erection in order to initiate or complete intercourse.

There are two forms of impotence, primary and secondary. The first is when a person is never able to have intercourse, while the second one is when the erectile dysfunction occurs after a period of time in which the person was able to achieve erections.

There are many causes for so-called transient impotence, which is when a person loses an erection during sex. Some of these causes include fatigue, alcohol abuse, distraction or anxiety.

According to the most recent studies, about 12 percent of men have problems with impotence.

Impotence can also be caused by medications, marijuana, anemia, diabetes, cerebral palsy, sclerosis and a variety of other illnesses.

Causes

Most of the time, impotence is the result of a psychogenic cause, not some physiological condition.

There are many causes, some of which include maternal or paternal dominance, parental issues, traumatic sexual experiences as a child, gender identity issues, traumatic experiences with sex, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, fear or sexually transmitted diseases, hostility, lack of attraction to the partner, performance demands or relationship-related problems.

There is also a condition known as Widower’s syndrome, which is a fairly common problem occurring after a man has lost his spouse.

It is very common for the man to have problems with impotence when he enters a new relationship after the passing of his spouse.

A good test to see if the impotence is a psychogenic or physiological problem is to see if you have an erection in the morning when you wake up. If you do, then most physiological problems and causes will be ruled out, including depression.  

Treatments

As far as psychogenic problems go, there are some tips to remember in trying to cure impotence.

A person must remember not to blame the partner for their importance and sexual problems.

It is also important to remember that these problems are common and that stereotypes on how men should behave and function sexually are usually very counterproductive and can put unneeded pressure on someone.

It is important to remember that sex is something that you and your partner do together, not something you do to your partner.

Intercourse is not the only part of sex, and it is important to develop feelings and the ability to communicate them in order to achieve successful sexual interaction.

It is important to set goals in the process, and it is of utmost importance to decrease performance anxiety. Communication is also a very important part of the process.

Physiological problems are much easier to regulate, especially since the invention of Viagra and similar products to help induce erections through prescribed drugs.
